About Us

Do you want to work on the most pressing problem of our generation? Do you have experience as a founder or entrepreneur and know what it’s like to roll up your sleeves and execute well, while building a company around you for the long term? If you truly know what it feels like to fly the plane while trying to build it, we want to hear from you. We’re looking for the best software engineers in the world to join a growing series A startup. At CarbonChain we see the climate crisis as a transformative opportunity for the global economy, and a rewarding career opportunity.

Decarbonizing the economy requires a granular, real-time view of where emissions come from and how they might be reduced. We’ve built software to automate the carbon footprinting of supply chains so their emissions can be measured and managed down. Banks, traders, and manufacturers use our product to tame the complexity of international supply networks, identify the most carbon-intensive parts, and find greener alternatives. Having developed technology which is significantly ahead of competitive solutions, we are now investing heavily in market adoption.

About the Role

We’re building an industrial-strength carbon accounting solution for the companies that buy from the world’s most polluting sectors. Our product has rapidly grown to serve dozens of the world’s largest commodity traders and their financing banks, and we’re accelerating growth into manufacturing.

We’re looking for a Product Manager to work closely with the leadership and tech teams to guide this growth. We need somebody who loves to spend time with users and buyers, with a passion for sustainability and understanding complex organisations. We’re at an inflection point where the number of different use cases supported by our platform is burgeoning, and we’d love to hire a PM with a strong instinct for synthesis who can unify the product around the most impactful user journeys, and identify opportunities for new offerings.

We’re a small team of versatile technologists and we don’t believe in a siloed approach. As a PM, you’ll be working with data scientists, software engineers, and domain experts to build solutions to facilitate the transition to net-zero. In a typical day you might:

  • Sit in on a customer call with a metals trader
  • Spend time with a carbon accounting expert figuring out how to represent uncertainty in our emissions estimates
  • Write up a series of user stories around new platform functionality
  • Take a call with a bank who wants advice on setting decarbonization KPIs
  • Conduct a user interview with the Head of ESG at a large commodity trader
  • Spend time driving alignment across engineering, sales, data science, and product design to accelerate the team

This is a senior role, requiring a deep understanding of technical, commercial, and environmental contexts.

We expect you to bring

  • Exceptional written and verbal communication
  • Experience with building technical software products in high growth environments
  • Demonstrated ability to lead and influence small teams of engineers towards a common goal
  • Fluency in data and how to make data-driven product decisions
  • Experience evaluating product decisions and prioritisation trade-offs

Ideally you’d also be familiar with

  • Experience as a founder
  • Designing and leading the development of data platforms that aggregate customer data to drive actionable insights and product innovation
  • Building products in a technical role (data science, engineering)
  • Decarbonisation, specifically carbon accounting
  • Financial institutions, specifically trade commodity finance

You can expect us to give you

  • A product with good instrumentation and users who would love to talk to you
  • A tight-knit, user-focused team
  • A well-oiled sales team who understand product constraints and will provide high quality access to the market
  • Huge potential for personal growth into a product leadership position
  • The opportunity to build amazing products
